  1. I am interested in any and all records for the Mattingly family. I think my grandfather’s birthday was in 1879, Aug. 2nd , his name was James Edward Mattingly, I think his father’s name was also James Edward, and they lived in St. Marys I would appreciate any information you could give me. Thank You, Danise Mattingly Isaacs
